'm joined by ed schultz, reverend al sharpton, chris hayes, steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell is our man in the spin room tonight. the one and only chris matthews is at centre college in danville, kentucky, the site of tonight's debate. chris, is this unusually high stakes for a vice presidential debate? >> well, it's great being with you, again, rachel, and everyone else tonight at msnbc. look, it's great. it's great in its importance because of what happened last week. the frustration from the democratic base, i expressed it a acceleratisimilar version of the frustration of the failure of the president to bring out all this issues that his paid advertising, speeches have made all year but for some reason he didn't bring up. the most powerful issues. i'm going to one through four or five. by one word. you know the one word. vouchers. the way paul ryan wants to deal with health care which won't work for medicare. personhood. the way he wants to basically in effect criminalize, turn it into murder abortion decisions. the emergency room. where this presidential candidate of the republican
, steve king lost some base support. democrats would love to pick up this seat. guest: i'm sure they would love to pick up the seat. the problem is they've already thrown in the towel. the rest of the democratic super pacs given up the seats. i'm glad they wasted money on this seat. steve king will win overwhelmingly. getting back to the budget. let's focus on the fact that barack obama budget was put in the house and senate and it got zero vote. that's a stilling argument. he's gotting zero votes, none in the house and none in the senate. listen, when you're negotiating, it's hard to negotiate with yourself. the democrats never figured out a way to get their whole coalition of democrats around everything. we look forward to negotiating with them and look forward to increasing job growth. host: robby mook, have democrats given up on vilsack? guest: that's untrue. we invested tremendous amount of money in the district. the real story here is this race is in play at all in the first place. the reason that it's in play, before there was a tea party steve king, was the tea party.
to steve schmidt, who's a senior adviser to the mccain/palin campaign in 2008. watching this as a republican, steve, i will just say in the room here us all watching together we were all much more riveted than we were last week during the presidential debate. what's your overall reaction with how the guys kid tonigdid ? >> it's a fiery debate. i can't remember a debate that's been as fiery as this one at this level. i think republicans will watch this. they will say paul ryan won. >> really? >> they'll be happy with this performance. i think democrats who watched this will be fired up about joe biden's performance. i think he did what he needed to do tonight which is to calm some of the panic in the democratic base by having a fiery performance. but i also think this -- his smiling, the laughing, the grinning, if you look at the recent history of debates, whether it's al gore sighing, president george herbert walker bush looking at his watch, so many of these debates have come to be dominated by these personality quirks that manifested themselves over the course of the d
in light of what was the last week in denver? >> steve, i think he touched on the biggest reason why this debate could be more important than these under cards typically are. that is because there is pressure on joe biden to stand and deliver, and to change the narrative from what we've had the last few days. which is a fact given president obama's weak performance in denver, that mitt romney for the first time it seemed a real bump in the polls, and in some states is polling narrowly ahead. so i think biden will try to turn that around, put paul ryan and the gop ticket back on the defensive and at the same time the burden is on trying to keep the mojo going, keep romney's sort of balance here a life released a few more days until the president and mitt romney face off again next week. so i think that's the biggest reason why this thing matters. also one important point and that is this is one of the first perhaps the only campaign where one side is really campaigning against the policies of the other parties vice president as much as they're running against the other party's preside
, samson on our democrat line. are you with us? let's move on to steve in shreveport, louisiana, on our independent line. caller: good morning. host: hold on a second, we are going back to steve. caller: i do have a personal experience in my own family. my father was very wealthy and i come from a very wealthy family. my mother really did not care about anything. the only people she wanted to hang around with or rich ladies. we had remade in our house and she did not do anything. she did not cook for us or anything. i was very disgusted with my own mother. from what i see of ann romney, the only thing she cares about is looking good and trying to look like she's 35 years old, caring about makeup and clothing. she was a cancer survivor, but she's not the only one. a lot of people are suffering from cancer. when mitt romney was putting his money overseas and exporting jobs overseas, she knew the whole thing. she should have said you should not do that. and it is against mormon religion to invest in a casino and things like that. it's against their religion. but she knew about it and let m
go back further. we look at steve camp or jack kemp. in 96, did he drown out voters? no, he may spending his own money, all you could do at that time on his own campaign made it more possible that bob dole might do so that other gop candidates in the race got heard from. everybody did. we go back to the last election before the passage of the campaign act of 1968. mccarthy got his campaign running in a weakened because a bunch of people given 10 million bucks, which you can't do. did that drown people out or did that make to that drown people out or did that make >> well, clearly, no lack of disagreement on >> well, clearly, no lack of disagreement on this panel. i do want to go back to you, ken. you've been looking not tracking the money. in addition to these questions of how much influence individuals have come and there's so question of what the state of play. one of the thinkers interested in a something you wrote about, that george soros warned the bible or virtual bible that he wouldn't donate to the super pac and he decided to. so what do you think is changing, kim, in th
assault. last night you learned the attackers couldn't get into steve stevens' safe room so they put it on fire. what's next? >> that's right, zoraida. smoke and fumes filled the air. stevens and the security guard were really having trouble breathing. they decided to move to a bathroom where there was a little bit more air. that proved to be unsuccessful. they decided to try to leave through an adjacent berm. as they were moving there, the security officer, protocol deck tates he try to get out first, when he turned around, ambassador stevens and sean smith were not there, the security officer and several officers took turns going into the smoke-filled, fire-filled building to try to find ambassador stevens and shawn smith. they did find shawn but they did not find ambassador stevens. we found out later that ambassador stevens had been taken to a hospital. they found his pocket and found his cellphone and started calling people who were listed in the phone and finally found out, reached the embassy to tell them he was there. >> oh, my goodness. after u.s. personnel left the consulat
